Vol. 19 No. 4 of The Storybook Home Journal

Sundborn Summer

What's in this issue?

In One Word: Personal the Decorating article

Here we explore the manner in which Carl and Karin reduced and remade the idea of the manor house into an everymans house, culling ideas that can turn any home into a palace of the heart.

Back to Dalarna the Hearth article

Follow the directions on these pages to create your own version of the most internationally recognized and collected of Swedish toys—the Dala Horse.

Larsson Lagom the Kitchen article

We begin this Storybook Kitchen installment with A Carl Larsson Visual Guide to Lovely Lagom, and follow with two Swedish culinary events that typify simplicity and sufficiency: fika and Smörgås.  Recipes include: Dark and Blonde Sister Cookies, Blonde Oat Bars (Havrerutor), Sweet Brunette Biscuits (Skorpor), Fika Summertime Ices, The Smörgåsbord, Doezsyse Friday Dessert, Fresh Smörgåsbord Pickles, Rye Smörgåsbord Bread (Rågbröd).

Already at the Piano the Music article

An original composition by Tanner demonstrates the style and technique of late Scandinavian Romantic piano music, and is accompanied by a brief analysis of the importance of the family piano to Sweden's musical culture when the Larssons lived in Sundborn.

Where Kersti was Working the Garden article

Here is a primer designed especially for a children's garden—though potentially beneficial to anyone—harvested from instructions published for children at the same time the Larssons were remaking Sundborn.

Back to Dalarna the Workshop article

Another Treasure the Writer's Garret article

The possibility of a forgotten treasure still hidden on Iona seems likely to send Seymore, Duhg, and Carrick straight into the jaws of the Fetts.
